I am as honest as a Denver man can be.
You kinda have to work to get a feel for this show but it is well worth mix and matching the sources available.
The Second Set is real good quality
but the first not so much.
Oh, beware the cut in GDTRFB was like the opposite of a good flashback.
The set list is off on this copy-
There is No UJB and No Caution.
The sound quality on this First Set fragment is mostly gnarly. but it is well worth seeking out the entire 2nd Set which is BLAZING
a extremely psychedelic listen.
1st set- sound wise ---augh-------- it is seeds and stems again
2nd set -5 trippy stars
If a comprehensive movie ever gets made about the life & times of this band
hopefully somebody can capture
the complete dosed mystique of this show.
4 minutes of this PITB
is like not enough liquid in the visine bottle

For the Danish kids - 5th E72
In between two E72 dates in København, they set up and played in a dorm cafeteria. Supposedly everybody got really dosed and Donna, unable to stand at her mic, lay under Keith's piano to feed her head and chill her bones. There's a palpable dripping to the show and it's surprisingly consistent but otherwise without the remarkable highlights found elsewhere on the tour - though there is a classic Pigpen jam and an interesting sandwich. Stakladen literally means "Stacking Barn" - i.e., Hay Loft - and was an attic cafeteria for a student building on Aarhus campus.
First Set. Bobby seems thrown by Donna's absence on Greatest Story. The rest is average E72 until a decent Beat it On Down the Line-8. China>Rider sounds lysergic and there's a Sweet Susie Loser. It's a Pigpen set/show. He liked both college kids and the small venues, and wasn't dosed, so it's no surprise that Next Time You See Me is a set piece. But a killer Playin' caps it. Oddly, the first set then has its own encore.
Second Set. Good Lovin' is really peak Pigpen. All you need to have is a good transmission>transformation>confirmation. But imagine today rapping "she's a bitch dog in heat" (unless, of course, you're actually in a rap band, then misogyny is as de rigueur as gun violence). Jer wriggles in a different riff than the norm (@1:15) in El Paso (and elsewhere). This show has no Dark Star (half of E72 do not), instead stretching out on Truckin'. The jam motors to an incipient The Other One - mostly Phil, but Bobby doesn't start the lyrics and the rest never really drop in, steering it away. Me & My Uncle has a cool segue-in. With Pig on organ, it sort of develops and then Bobby just launches the verse. Going back to The Other One is surprising but again they steer away after one verse - Jer doesn't bite and Billy drives with the NFA clave. Not bad, but it gets better at GDtRFB. The final Not Fade Away is less lysergic by this point, but still there's no encore.
1st Set: B- 2nd Set: B
Overall = 3 1/2 Stars
Playin' in the Band - jam is one of the more cohesive of E72
Good Lovin' - one of E72's mother jams and top Pigpen spiels
TOO>Me & My Uncle>TOO - Cool/unique sandwich pulled off
Goin' Down the Road Feeling Bad - Second solo is fantastic

Best sound quality for the first set of this performance
Although the first set suffers from several tragic cuts and is rather poor in sound quality, the band must have felt comfortable performing in the low ceilinged university cafeteria. The second set of this performance is another gem.
A well jammed Good Lovin' preceeds a smokey performance of Truckin'. With some brilliant soloing, Jerry just rips through both instrumental breaks. It's certainly one of the best performances of Truckin' on the tour, in spite of a couple vocal miscues.
There is a remarkable passage during the very last part of the segue into the very uniquely jammed Other One. Bobby and Phil briefly lock in on a rather facinating theme which is later revisited several times during The Other One Jam. This is an atypicaly structured performance of The Other One. It contains several rather quiet passages and is played largely without any drums. One of the intense segments occurs during the early stage of the jam. First Jerry and Phil collaborate before Keith eventually chimes in. Deep into the jam, the Other One theme loosely resurfaces. Weir again slashes those similar leads, continuing to exploit the previous theme with Phil. Finally Billy returns to the stage and the band segues into a short but sweet Me and My Uncle before finally getting around to the first verse of The Other One. Two and a half minutes later its on to the well played NFA> GDTRFB> NFA suite and this one is in the books. (94 pts)
